Subtitled: Dust Off Your Walkers & Get A New Hearing Aid Battery
What a difference a year makes. Having seen Jack Bruce play a (very) small and (suprisingly) good gig at a local gin mill (that holds tops: 80 people) last year - after coming off (from what I’ve heard) a rather successful set of shows @ London’s RAH, (The) Cream are coming to NYC’s Madison Square Garden to play 3 shows October 24 through the 26th.
I’m on the fence about going.For starters, I really don’t like this ‘American Express Cardmembers Pre-Sale’ policy.
Secondly, through some type of ‘don’t mess with nostalgia stubborness’ - I’ve avoided the Stones tours, (the countless) Who’s final farewells and the Simon & Garfunkel 'Artie needs Ca$h’ reunions.
Thirdly, even though Cream’s first single (Wrapping Paper / Cat’s Squirrel) was released the same month I was born - I’m not ready to come to grips with the fact I’ve even considered attending my first 'oldies show’The angel on my other shoulder keeps whispering, ‘But this is Cream…You still listen to their albums!’
